Very inspiring. I've always admired the flugelhorn, but they barely exist here in the States. I was a trumpet player: on the first day of seventh grade a trumpet was shoved into my hands by our junior high school music director as he said "Here, this is your instrument." "No, no, no!" I protested, but to no avail. My dreams of becoming a drummer like Gene Krupa were derailed and I wheezed and puffed and generated a lot of spit throughout my school career with an instrument I worked hard to tolerate and never mastered.
